Futures & Options Trading Strategies

The futures markets can be difficult to navigate, even for the most experienced hedgers and speculators. Please call for an informative discussion on the range of trading strategies available to you when initiating bullish, bearish or neutral positions using futures and/or options.

Sean O’Leary, President of Hawkeye Commodity Brokers, Inc. is able to instruct both novice and experienced hedgers and speculators about trading techniques and risk management principles. Those with a need or desire to trade grain, soy, livestock, energy, metals, interest rates, stock index and similar futures and options markets are encouraged to call to consult. Topics of discussion include portfolio exposure, leverage, margin, fundamental and technical analysis, as well as the various ways to initiate bearish, bullish and neutral positions using futures, options or a combination of the two. Some of the option strategies discussed will be straddles, strangles, verticals, ratios, collars, butterflies and condors.
